I get asked a lot, "How has Fun 4th been going on for so long?" or "Why are all these people still doing this?" Honestly, I don't really know. I haven't been around long enough to know and I can't speak for the majority of the people that have kept this thing going. But, I can speculate that what

Of course, all of this applies to you too! I'm sure all of you can remember your 1st, or 5th, or 20th Fun 4th. Maybe it was the year your first child was born. Maybe it was the first year you lived in Greensboro. Maybe it was the first time your family had ever seen fireworks. I bet if you think about it hard enough, you can get pulled right back to that time and you will have a happy heart thinking about who you were then and what your life was like and what Fun 4th has meant to you all these years.
For me, my 1st Fun 4th was a time when everything was different. I had a new husband, was living in a new town, was starting my first real job. I was both excited and scared. Everything was decided and everything was unsure all at once. And I was standing on a stage, hoping not to get stampeded

Last year I asked you guys to come out and celebrate Fun 4th's 40th anniversary. I honestly feel like it was one of the best years yet and it wouldn't have happened at all if we hadn't been able to share it with all of you. This year, I would love if every single one of you came to Fun 4th and shared my 5th anniversary with me. It's no 40, that's for sure, but I will be celebrating none the less. If you've never been to Fun 4th, even better. Come make your first Fun 4th memory this year. I promise it will be something you'll never forget!
